Year 3 Stone Age D&T Day

 

Year 3 have had a fantastic day taking part in different activities about the Stone Age. They started the day by thinking about Stone Age foods and where they might be collected from. Apples from the school grounds were then collected and stewed for the children to use in their own fruit crumble which they thoroughly enjoyed making the topping for!

 

In the afternoon the children learnt all about Stone Henge and worked in groups to try and recreate the famous monument from pink wafer biscuits. They did a super job and had lots of fun!

Year 3 Stone Age Caves!, by Mrs Ashford Eaton

Date: 28th Sep 2016 @ 9:27am

Year 3 have been very busy completing their learning logs over the last 2 weeks.

The children were asked to research the Stone Age and create a Stone Age scene. They were told they could be as creative as they liked!

I have to say, we were so impressed by the effort and the creations that many children clearly put into their learning log; and they look like they must have had a lot of fun as well!

Please take a look at the photos showing what the children think a Stone Age scene would look like.

Well done Year 3!

Underwater Street Trip - Reception, by Mrs Grice

Date: 11th Jul 2016 @ 8:40am

What a fantastic day we all had on our adventure to ‘Liverpool Underwater Street’!

We started the day on a double decker coach which was very exciting and off we went.  The ‘Underwater Street’ is a discovery centre full of various activities and workshops that allowed us to imagine, explore and learn practically in a fun, practical way J

As soon as we arrived we all had a drink and snack and listened to the staff explain all the wonderful opportunities that were available.  The children then had chance to explore the ‘Street’ which included a pizza restaurant, vets, supermarket, building site and plenty of dressing up.  We had choices to make travel bags, 3D flowers, magnets, bath bombs and smelly, slippery slime as a part of the workshops where the staff explained how each process worked.  There was also a ‘smelling wall’, water exploration, panning for gold, a ‘shadows’ room, cave with stalactites and our favourite climbing wall.  We were amazed at having the chance to paint a real car and the walls!!!!!!!

Lunch was also a fun, sociable time as we all sat together at tables and thoroughly enjoyed our picnic bags! (Thank you Mrs Speak J)  Soon it was time for our ‘Science’ workshop where we learnt how to make and move huge bubbles and watched as one of each class became a ‘professor’ and helped to invent an exploding potion.  It was fascinating!

All too soon it was time to leave with our bags of creative goodies and happy, smiling faces.  What a wonderful day and an exciting educational place to visit!  The children were a delight to take out of school as their behaviour was impeccable and a real credit to our school, we were very proud J

A huge thank you to all our helpers who came with us and helped us to manage a superb day for everyone!!

Year 2 Poetry Reading , by Miss Holland

Date: 17th Jun 2016 @ 1:52pm

We had a lovely afternoon today with 'Poetry reading' from Mrs. Swift/Mrs.Utteridge's class.  They had written summer poems 'Count on me at the Seaside' which had 10 descriptive, rhyming phrases.  They were full of imagery including metaphors and similies so we could picture it in our heads.  We all liked the sand as bright as gold, the blue, shimmering sea and of course the seaside ten for fun!!!

The children read to us individually and then we had some brave performers who read their poems out loud to the whole class...........a huge well done, they were fabulous and made us all think of our summer holidays ;-)

Ummmm I wonder if we could write a poem now?!

 

Chicks!, by Miss Holland

Date: 16th Jun 2016 @ 12:15pm

How lucky were we today when we had a surprise visit from Carla's mummy who brought in some 1 and 2 day old chicks!  Mrs Smith explained the lifecycle of the chick to us and even had some of the broken egg shells from this morning.  She also showed us some photos of the parent hens who were very large and helped us to understand why the chicks were already a good size.  We all had chance to stroke or even hold a chick and washed our hands before sharing how they felt.  It was interesting to learn about the incubator and the heat lamp.....one chick even fell asleep in Mrs Cropper's hands it was so warm and comfortable!

A HUGE THANKYOU to Mrs Smith for sharing the chicks with us and we can't wait to see them again in a couple of weeks to see their down change to feathers and how much they have grown laugh

Year 5 controllable vehicles, by Mr Johnson

Date: 14th Jun 2016 @ 12:38pm

Apart from rehearsing and performing 'Ali Baba and the Bongo Bandits', during Science and DT week, Year Five were designing and making controllable vehicles.

The children learnt how to measure, mark and cut wood and join it using cardboard triangles.  They then researched existing vehicle designs and and created their own body for the car.  Once these two aspects were completed, they used their previous learning of electrical circuits and learnt how to fit gears and pulleys to make their vehicle move.

Once complete, the children then used trial and improvement to make their vehicle the best it could be.

Great work again Year Five!
